NHL Ban on Blindside Hits

Today the owners in the NHL decided unanimously to put new rules on blindside hits to the head. They agreed that the blindside hits are punishable with a 5 minute major penalty and a match ejection. I think it’s about time the NHL started to crack down on the dangerous hits.

2010-2011 Update

This month a lot has happened. The former captain, Rob Blake, has retired. GM Doug Wilson dished Brad Staubitz over to the Wild for a 5th round draft pick, and as of today the Sharks have released their schedule for next season. They will play their first season game against the Thrashers at home on October 16. The drafts will start on June 25. Also free agents will become available on July 1st
Speaking of free agents, the Sharks will not be resigning Nabby. So he will become a free agent. Could the Sharks be going after Turco? And so far they haven’t resigned Marleau either.
